Great quiz, but you need to accept "…_ _ _ _ O _ E _ O R E _ _ _ E" without the ellipses.
May 5th, 2012 at 04:08 GMT
@MRL. Sorry! I think I fixed it.
May 5th, 2012 at 04:53 GMT
Led Zeppelin II also fits the clue and is arguably more correct, since the name of the album isn't ACTUALLY Led Zeppelin IV...
May 5th, 2012 at 05:02 GMT
@floydpink. Actually that is the name of the album. And the other album didn't sell over 20 million albums.
May 5th, 2012 at 06:01 GMT
Regardless, you got a little carried away with the album name--that "IN" shouldn't be there. :-)
May 5th, 2012 at 17:26 GMT
"After the lukewarm, if not confused and sometimes dismissive, critical reaction Led Zeppelin III had received in late 1970, Page decided that the next Led Zeppelin album would not have a title..." But hey, what would the lead guitarist of the band know?
Aug 1st, 2012 at 03:38 GMT
The official title of the 4th Led Zeppelin album is the 4 symbols but they are a pain to try to type. It is commonly referred to as IV, but it is not an official title.

Great idea and great quiz. You've got a pretty high rating there. Good job.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:24 GMT
Odd - I'm being credited with answers I didn't get right, but some that I got are marked wrong?
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:29 GMT
Nice quiz. Tried EAGLES for Eminem until I looked at the associated album
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:34 GMT
EAGLES would also have been show as E _ _ L E S.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:36 GMT
@DerekH: Probably my fault. The Led Zep album was split over 2 line and I was trying to get the other rows to line up again. Should be fixed now.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:42 GMT
@Rockgolf, I know. It was a brief senior moment.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:44 GMT
Great concept! The AC/DC album needs spaces in it though, as does Mariah Carey's.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 15:47 GMT
@mat Sorry about that, someone else was editing my quiz and messed up a few of the entries.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 16:00 GMT
I only missed one artist completely. Turns out not only do I own the LP on vinyl... I listened to it YESTERDAY! :(
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 17:33 GMT
Unless there's a reason I didn't see, you should accept "19" for the album by _ _ ELE in addition to the correct answer. It's not difficult to figure out but there's no reason the other should be excluded. Great quiz.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 17:41 GMT
@_Pedantic_ 21 is one of the best-selling albums of all time selling 22 millions copies so far. 19 barely sold 6.5 million copies. That's why it doesn't accept 19.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 18:06 GMT
Great quiz. As a side point...there was one answer that I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't take, then after looking at it for entirely too long, I discovered I had made a slight typo. However, Gnus N Roses sounds like a band that SHOULD sell 20 million albums, in a just world.
Aug 4th, 2012 at 01:26 GMT
Billy Ray Cyrus had a whole album?
Aug 4th, 2012 at 03:09 GMT
i was terrible at this but it was still fun. :)
